All of our caskets are built with "green" in mind. Made from local pine, sanded and unfinished, these caskets have no toxic finishes and no metal hardware except for uncoated nails. Our wood glue is non-toxic and biodegradable. Top and bottom are made from pine boards as well, unlike many pine box caskets which use plywood. Often times, plywood contains formaldehyde and other toxins in the adhesives used to bind the layers. At Grieving Green, we do our best to avoid these toxins and we are constantly investing in new manufacturing methods to reduce the number of nails needed for structural integrity.
